Abstract : When a quartz crystal resonator unit is used in a reflectance bridge to stabilize the frequency of an oscillator it is found that the frequency is insensitive to the length of the cable between the crystal unit and the bridge. Properties of the reflection coefficient of a crystal unit, one of which explains this insensitivity, and some related crystal unit measurements will be described.
